Due to the great success of the railroad, Cordele, Georgia, experienced rapid and widespread growth during the early 1890s. As it was called later, the Gillespie-Selden Historic District developed during this period, and many of its residents worked for the railroad.
The residences are primarily are one-story wood-framed buildings with uniform setbacks from the streets. Like our featured home today, most of the earlier houses were built during the late 19th/early 20th centuries and have minimal stylistic detailing.
Two architectural styles popular in the Gillespie-Selden Historic District are the Georgian Cottage and Queen Anne Cottage. Which style would you characterize our home today? Descriptions are below.
